Vinyl LP pressing. For Nate Kinsella, the music he plays as Birthmark creates a place for his mind to go to get away from the real world. On his last album, 2012's achingly intimate Antibodies, he explored quiet, contemplative terrain. But on his fourth LP, How You Look When You're Falling Down, Kinsella actively sought to create a more positive and energized place. Much of the album's inspiration came from Kinsella's move from Illinois to NYC, which pushed him out of his Midwestern comfort zone in every imaginable way. He discovered an electrical charge in the sudden anonymity he found in his new home, especially after spending so much time in the Chicago music scene, where the Kinsella name is a big deal and he's still better known for playing with his cousin Mike in American Football and Owen and his cousin Tim in Joan of Arc and Make Believe.
